    Serving Materials Too Slick on Tab

    I bought a reel of Diamondback at the start of my recurve career. Never finished it so it's all I've ever used. Didn't even know it was possible to get slippage. I tried once. Levering the riser back and forth at part draw but it took a lot of force to get any movement at all.

    Just been to Morrisons. No flour. No muesli or rice, except the more 'bespoke' types. Loads of bread though. Shopping a bit more expensive now that the shelves are emptier. Not sure people are really taking the hoarding seriously 😁. Shelves full of low sugar items and posh stuff.

    Cheapish training limbs

    I've always used the SF Axiom Plus for budget limbs. Now called WNS Axiom Alpha I guess. Around sixty quid.

    Has anyone opened a Stan Perfex thumb release aid?

    Aye. That's the one. If the hook is supposed to be spring loaded then, as you say, you'd need a second spring to flip the sear into locking position. I guess that this release automatically locks the hook? In normal operation. No need to click a lever to latch it?

    Has anyone opened a Stan Perfex thumb release aid?

    However, this depends on how you operate the release. On my hinge I flick the hook back onto a magnet with a finger on one type. On the other, a little elastic band does the same job. I'm not sure the handedness of the spring works like I've suggested but you might be able to experiment. Hours...

    Has anyone opened a Stan Perfex thumb release aid?

    I think we're talking at cross purposes. The thigh spring is the little one on the hook. Not the big one for the trigger. I can't see why you'd need one on the hook but I dont know what the hook action feels like on a Stan. You could put the thigh spring on the latch pivot and use it to preload...

    Has anyone opened a Stan Perfex thumb release aid?

    There are only three possibilities: 1. Something has been reassembled incorrectly. Such as the little thigh spring. 2. Despite your excellent care in opening the release in a plastic bag, something has been lost. Very easy for something tiny. 3. During the cleaning process, something has been...

    Has anyone opened a Stan Perfex thumb release aid?

    In normal use, is the hook floppy or sprung until locked?

    Has anyone opened a Stan Perfex thumb release aid?

    I'd wonder about that thigh spring. Closer look says the big spring is on the trigger. Maybe the thigh spring hooks onto the sear to click it into lock position.

    Picture isnt detailed enough at the little spur to see if there should be owt in there.

    Has anyone opened a Stan Perfex thumb release aid?

    I was about so say - use the attach files button. How confident are you that the thigh spring on the hook is in the correct place and is located correctly? Looks like the big spring pulls the pawl/sear into lock location. The thigh spring gives the hook some spring loading and helps it open by...

    No good without pics Geoff. You didn't lubricate it did you?

    Million to one chances crop up nine times out of ten.

    Should all club activities be cancelled?

    Trouble with risk assessing continuous shooting is that the insurance company are under no obligation to give a poop. If THEY think you haven't done everything reasonable and since it's not possible to be entirely sure you've covered all eventualities.... One point that I've considered is that...

    Archery clubs and inclusive names.

    True 😆. Think of it as fine tuning. First you sort out the base levels in the hierarchy of needs (nice axe Mr Viking) and then transfer efforts to the upper tiers.

    Archery clubs and inclusive names.

    Ah well. But was the female vote split? I mean, if twenty percent of the committee was female and they all voted to change the name, then you haven't solved anything.

    Archery.... is there a need for further change?

    I haven't said I'm happy about the situation, whatever that is. I get to shoot in the way I want to shoot. I'd love an all knowing font of wisdom to watch my form 100% of the time and tell me exactly what I'm doing wrong AND how to correct it. I'd love an easy way to carry out tuning exercises...

    Archery.... is there a need for further change?

    I'd say that most clubs can't do both. Owning or renting a target suitable field AND and Field suitable woodland.... As for the separation, I'd say its related. While the idea of field is interesting, I couldn't do it without sacrificing time on the target range. The same reason I don't take...

    Archery.... is there a need for further change?

    I think serious archery is actually a solitary sport. With optional fun in the fresh air with friends. When I shoot, I'm working on myself. When I compete, I'm still working on myself. Comparing my scores to others afterwards is incidental since my shooting has no impact outside of me. The...
